Jessica September Buchanan grew up on the seashores and in the wilderness of western Canada. She began the study of essential oils in 1991, and after formal certification in the field of clinical aromatherapy, Jessica began to practise the art of natural perfumery. After 4 years of work in her own lab, she moved to France to study at the Grasse Institute of Perfumery (Alumni 2007). Here she found a depth of understanding of the perfumed art that was highly refining.
Following her education, she interned in two of the traditional perfume houses of the region. (Robertet and Mane) which facilitated an enlightening inside view of the perfume industry. The city of Grasse and its history is enchanting and Jessica has found herself absorbed into its culture.
She cherishes her time there, as she continues to learn and explore a creative fusion of her natural roots with her training in modern perfumery.
